    Special to The Trimble Banner
    One of Rotary International’s six main causes includes “Supporting Education”. Our Bedford club has historically been active with this cause for many years and supports our local schools in many ways in support of education at all levels. We were most appreciative to learn, once again, how active the Trimble County Public Library is in carrying out summer reading activities for our community.

  • Betta fish, also known as Siamese fighting fish, are the pugilists of the fish keeping world. The Betta is a small creature with elaborate, filmy fins that float around their owner like silk.
    The Betta comes in a variety of jewel tones. Like snowflakes and fingerprints, no two are ever alike. These tiny treasures are indeed a masterpiece of creation.

  • As summer comes to a close and September approaches, not only does fall bring corn mazes, squash and pumpkins, it is also a perfect time to visit local orchards to pick the freshest apples.
    A medium size apple—about 2 to 2.5 inches in diameter—contains approximately 75 calories and provides bulk in the diet, helping the body digest food. Apples are low in sodium and high in potassium, making them a great natural snack.

  • Last week my husband and I took a short trip to Winter Garden, a town not too far from Orlando.
    We went to the historic downtown district with its trendy businesses housed in restored storefronts from as far back as the early 1900s.
    A restaurant we went in was originally Cappleman Brothers Grocery Store, built in 1912.
    As my husband read the menu, I read about the history of the building -- the original brick, the gothic stained glass panels in the front window that came from an old Presbyterian church.
